Jeju Island Tourist Attractions
Jeju Island, also known as the "Island of the Gods," is a popular vacation spot for Koreans and foreigners. It remains the top honeymoon destination for Korean newlyweds. Despite attempts to market the island as "the Hawaii of Korea," climatologically and geographically it bears little in similarity to the Hawaiian Islands in the U.S. The island offers visitors a wide range of activities: hiking on Halla-san (South Korea's highest peak) or Olle-gil(routes), catching sunrises and sunsets over the ocean, riding horses, touring all the locales from a favorite television K-drama, or just lying around on the sandy beaches. Although tourism is one of the main industries on the island, many of the hotels and other tourist areas are run by mainland companies, so much of the income never gets put back into the local economy.
Jeju Island, located at the Korean peninsula's southwest seas, is the largest island in Korea. It covers an area of 1,845 square kilometers and boasts of a mild climate, natural beauty, well-developed infrastructure and distinctive cultural traditions. Korean people often compare the island with Hawaii. Similar to Hawaii, Jeju Island was also a creation of volcanic eruptions. You can still find volcanic sands, soils and rocks in various parts of the island. Jeju has established itself as one of the country's most popular tourist destinations in recent times. Here are some of the places you must visit on your trip to the natural paradise.
